One day I'll order pasta again at Stellina Pasta Café. Until then, though, like a nicotine addict, I'll be unable to resist the lure of smoke. The South Side Smoke is pork shoulder imbued with the sweetness of hickory and apple woods.

The pulled meat is topped with smoked gouda -- a deeper smoke flavor -- and served on ciabatta that carries a soft tang of sea salt. That's it. That's all you need.
